My Opinion as well . That is one of the many reasons why I have my '/'
autoassemble . And do to this I am permanently stuck at 0.90 version of the
raid table . No big shakes for that . But at sometime in the past there was a
discussion to have the 0.90 raid table be removed , NOW THAT SCARES THE H?LL
OUT OF ME . So far Neil has not done so .

I am unaware of any record from Neil or other maintainer(s) of the
/md/ device tree saying that they will not remove the 0.90 table and the
autoassembly functions there . I'd very much like to hear a statement saying
there will not be a removal of the autoassembly functions for 0.90 raid table
from the kernel tree .
